Plantronics Explodes Into Console Gaming World

Plantronics has expanded its award-winning family of wireless and corded GameCom headsets for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Designed to enhance gaming experiences through rich, vibrant audio, the new line-up is headlined by the GameCom X95 Wireless Stereo headset and GameCom X40 Stereo headset for Xbox 360 users and the GameCom P90 Bluetooth headset for the PlayStation 3.

The Plantronics GameCom X95 is a wireless gaming headset that delivers full stereo sound from 40mm speakers. With a closed-ear design and intuitive on-ear controls for changing volume and audio levels, users can immerse themselves in games, music and movies without disturbing others.

The GameCom X95 has a sleek and modern design with a mic that easily tucks into the headband when not in use. Perfect for long gaming sessions, the GameCom X95 can be used for more than 20 hours before replacing the included AAA batteries.

The new Plantronics GameCom X40 is a corded headset that features the same 40mm speakers as the GameCom X95 for exceptional stereo sound. The GameCom X40 eliminates cumbersome in-line controls by placing separate volume and audio control buttons on the earpods. The headset is extremely lightweight and features specially designed cushioned earpods and headband that redistribute pressure for a great fit.

Plantronics also introduced the GameCom X30 and GameCom X10 corded headsets for chat on the Xbox 360.

The perfect PlayStation 3 companion, the new GameCom P90 Bluetooth headset enables users to talk to friends wirelessly during gaming sessions. The GameCom P90 can also connect to a mobile phone, so it can be used for game chats as well as mobile calls while enjoying the same, crystal-clear audio.

The GameCom P90 features QuickPair technology for easy pairing to the PlayStation 3, and includes dedicated mute volume and on/off buttons for convenience.

The Plantronics GameCom has a slim earloop and contoured eartip for a comfortable, secure fit. It includes a USB charging cable that connects to the PlayStation 3 system.

“We engineered the new GameCom products to give console gamers what value most in a great headset: outstanding audio performance, plug-and-play simplicity and comfortable designs,” said Stuart Bradshaw, Plantronics EMEA Head of Consumer Marketing “The mix of wireless stereo, Bluetooth and corded products also gives consumers more choices, so they can find a solution that meets their individual preference and style.”
